I've seen several variations of this recipe floating around on pinterest. The one I used was from Somewhat Simple and she gives a wonderful tutorial.
The idea behind it is that you make a sugar cookie shaped like a puddle, covered with icing, and then topped off with a marshmallow that has been warmed a few seconds in the microwave. What makes the blobs turn into snowmen is the decorations and this is where you can really get creative!
We changed it up a bit by using mini chocolate sprinkles for the faces, and some candies for buttons (and some of the noses). I have seen so many variations including the addition of the marshmallow snowball which I incorporated.
I have also seen resees cups for top hats or edible markers to draw the faces on. The possibilities are endless once you've got the basics.
I think Holiday cookie's are one of my favorite things. By the way I have been loving the feedback on the Andes Mint cookie recipe I posted last week.
"These cookies are awesome and so easy! Thanks for the recipe. Seeing that I accidentally bought a box of brownies instead of cake mix, I went ahead and used that instead. I cut the vegetable oil down to 1/4 cup, added 3/4 c flour plus 3 Tbs water. Then I added 2 eggs just like the recipe called for! These turned out perfect:)."
